FIRESIDE STORIES II
May 27 – June 6
Dancing Sky Theatre – Meacham
There’s nothing like personal stories told around a campfire on a warm evening. Dancing Sky Theatre took performance back to its origins last Fall with Fireside Stories and the show quickly sold out in Meacham and Saskatoon. With COVID-19 rules still in place, the team decided it was a great time to welcome an audience back to its outdoor amphitheatre for the sequel. Fireside Stories II is a show filled with stories told in the traditional way but also through dance, clowning, poetry and music. Tickets are $10 so enjoy the drive out to the country, snuggle up with your loved ones and get your butt to Meacham.
They’ve won countless Junos, criss-crossed the country playing festivals, bars and theatres and man have we missed these members of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. Blue Rodeo is taking part in Live Nation’s “Live From The Inside” concert series. The string of live stream shows is raising money and support for the venues in this country that have suffered during the pandemic. Jim Cuddy, Greg Keelor and the band will take the stage at the Danforth Music Hall and play all the hits. Tickets for this live stream are $50.
Warman’s Scared Scriptless Players has shifted gears to create a new comedy that will be streamed this weekend. 10 Ways to Survive a Life in Quarantine was written by Don Zolidis explores a list of handy ways to pass the time while cooped up at home. These are weird times and this comedy is here for it all. Staging a musical with your dog to falling in love with an inanimate object. Join this community-based company for a little fun. Tickets are $8 for the performance.
From folk to pop and a little jazz, Canadian singer-songwriter Jill Barber has charmed crowds right across the country and yes, right here in Saskatoon. Barber is taking part in the Bella Live From Your Couch series. Barber released her latest album Entre Nous in the middle of the pandemic. It’s her second French-language album and perfect for a date night. Tickets are free although you need to register to get access.
